Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Storybook Fold Technique Video Tutorial

April 22, 2020

Be sure to check back at 1 pm MT (3 pm EST) to see the RETIRING LIST

from the Annual and Mini Catalogs!!! 

I have an awesome fun fold technique for you today…a Storybook Fold…
an old technique but new for me!

It is not difficult at all… watch this video to see.


I used the NEW Ornate Borders Dies on this card.

The measurement for the inside folding mechanism is the same if you use Designer Series Paper or cardstock with DSP on it.

Isn’t it cool? It looks like it took so much time to do but it didn’t!

I tried out Petal Pink as my card base on this one.

I switched it up on this card and used Mossy Meadow as my card base.

I liked the contrast of the darker DSP with the Petal Pink border on this one.

Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side
Folding Mechanism inside: 5-1/4″ x 8-1/4″ cut and scored as shown in video:
With 5-1/4″ side at top of trimmer- put left side at 1″ and cut down from 1” to 7-1/4” to create two 6” slits, turn the paper and do this on the other side, too. Then, turn paper so that 8-1/4″ side is at top of trimmer and score in between the slits at 1″ and 1-3/4″ on both sides. You will also score in between the slits at 4-1/8″ and outside the slits to the top and to the bottom of card base, you will score in  2-1/2″ from each end.
DSP on Front: 3-3/4″ x 5″, Inside: 2-1/4″x 5″ cut as shown in video for sides, (4) 3/4″ x 1-3/4″
Border around DSP on front: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Early Espresso Ornate Border Die is cut from a 1-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ piece of cardstock, DSP is 3/4″ x 3-3/4″

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane and Daisy Delight

April 10, 2020

I got happy mail this week! I opened up a decorated envelope to see this absolute beauty!

Peg is one of my sweet friends I stamp with on Fridays each month. She is just one of the nicest people you could meet. She really knocked it out of the park with this gorgeous card. I love the white against the Pool Party that was cut with one of the beautiful Delicate Lace Dies. It is a perfect bottom layer to showcase the beautiful medium daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set punched out with the Medium Daisy Punch. Using Smoky Slate ink to stamp the daisies was a great decision- it is so light and airy. The Smoky Slate ink worked so well with the Clear Faceted Gems. The use of vellum from the Frosted Bouquet  Dies added just the right touch with the Pear Pizzazz leaves from the Poppy Moments Dies. And the sweet sentiment from Well Written stamped on one of the Ornate Frames Dies is just so special to me:)


Another smile was put on my face this week when I received another pretty card from my friend, Carla Hess. She used the Daisy Delight and the Daisy Lane stamp sets. The  gray, black, and pink palette with embossed vellum leaves from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set are such a great combination. I love the layering of the two different daisies. The two daisy stamp sets look so nice together on Carla’s card. She decorated her envelope, too!

Thank you, Carla, for the sweet words of encouragement:)


Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Have a blessed Easter weekend, dear friends. Praying you are well.
Much love sent to you all.
